14th Annual EnVisions Conference
Sat, March 25, 2017, 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM EDT
The Coalition of Latin@ Scholars (CLS) is hosting its 14th Annual EnVisions Conference, a one-day conference organized in collaboration with the Vice President's Office for Diversity and Community Affairs at Teachers College, to help prepare undergraduate students for the graduate school experience, on Saturday, March 25, 2017 from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. This year's EnVisions Conference theme is Nuestra Presencia: Increasing the Visibiilty of People of Color in Higher Ed. The conference aims to serve marginalized undergraduates (low-income, first generation, linguistic, and racial/ethnic minorities, etc.) that may not have access to the cultural and social capital that puts them on an unencumbered path to graduate school, in order to increase their representation in in postgraduate programs and academia as a whole.
The conference will be held at Teachers College, Columbia University, at 525 W 120th Street, New York, NY 10027, in rooms 177 & 179 in Grade Dodge Hall.
